Holy cow! A month has passed since my last post. How the heck did that happen?
It's been a month full of so many things... Mother's Day, a wedding, rain in Austin, and a trip to Florida to name a few... each worthy of their own blog post. But at this late date all they'll get is a brief mention, and maybe a photo or two. Sigh.
"Some day man will travel at the speed of light, of small interest to those of us still trying to catch up to the speed of time."
First I'm very pleased to announce our "big" pond is full and overflowing for the first time in years, thanks to all of the May showers!
And the sound of our little waterfall is music to our ears.
It's still hard for me to believe, but Lake Travis is almost full again! I love seeing its blue shimmer in the distance as I wind my way home through the hills. It's like those dried up coves were all a bad dream.
As I've done in the past, I'll start with the most recent sweet! and move backwards, letting my photos jog my memory ... because that's much easier! So here we go...
The voice of Johnny Mathis, still smooth as a fine wine, enjoyed with friends at Austin's Long Center. Magical and timeless! (He looks the same - no photos allowed inside, but none needed!)
Celebrating the upcoming wedding of a girl you've watched grow up...the yummy food, mimosas, and silly games of bridal showers ... visiting with friends and girls who you would swear just yesterday were in elementary school.
Time is so tricky.
Grandpuppy-sitting. Double the normal puppy fun!
A gorgeous day spent showing property in Marble Falls to a couple from Georgia, especially when you learn the woman is from your hometown and graduated from the same high school you did!
An afternoon photographing East 6th Street with a meet-up group...and meeting Patches, whose owner is thoughtful enough to provide her with booties to protect her paws from the hot pavement.
Hanging out with friends under the stars on a summer night, listening to live music provided by other talented friends. (Aegean)
Being able to move your office outside on a beautiful day, with the sound of your little waterfall playing in the background.
American Beautyberry blossoms.
Hitting the antique/thrift shops in Florida with your sister-in-law, and indulging your vintage miniature Mexican chair addiction.
A few hours on a Florida beach with your camera and all of those colors.
Looking through priceless wedding photos of your mother- and father-in-law...and realizing you can make your own copies of them with your iPhone.
Exploring a section of the Blackwater River State Forest with your sisters-in-law and nieces on a rainy day.
That's where June began, so I'll call it a post and pick up at the end of May tomorrow. I've had so much fun sorting through my photos! If you've stuck it out to the end, thanks for tagging along!
You probably already know, but those heavy rains which were such a blessing to us also caused deadly flooding on the Blanco River in Wimberley, south of Austin. Please keep those families in your prayers!
